The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars stating "El Encuentro ("The Meeting") is a series of musical short stories that ultimately become an entire narrative".[2] The All About Jazz review by John Kelman stated "El Encuentro, Saluzzi's first live recording, expands on its antecedents both in scope and palette".[3] The JazzTimes review by Mike Joyce stated "Those who enjoy Saluzzi’s collaborations with his brother, tenor saxophonist Felix Saluzzi, and cellist Anja Lechner won’t be disappointed by their soulful and lyrical contributions, or the skill with which they develop independent voices that color and sustain the composer’s signature narrative threads".[4]
